  1. Stop The Room From Spinning! (art Experiments in Immersive Sound):
    New surround music with the ambisonics standard, providing possibilities for new interactive and immersive sound works; we work with open and free source software only, to create both home/outdoor, studio based and online streamed pieces.
  2. Scrambling Through The Wires (art Experiments in Connected Music):
    Online Sound Ensembles, working and creating collaboratively and performing together with a minimum of latency for synchronization and timed interaction purposes.
  3. Collaborative and Blended Performances (the ButtuLab PhenoMenon):
    Regular workshops online help you build your own Low Voltage Musical Instruments [LOVMI], tinkered or 3D printed, with IOT sensors for environmmental sonification or visualisation. Green Art Power makes you think of being off-grid, and provides a DIY approach for sustainable outdoor performance equipment. And all can be web and FM broadcast by our Community Radio Zá partner!

Additional countryside related activities and actions are organized in between, with other local organizations or offered by friends of the KRA: ekofarming, landscape restoration, edu-cultural and social in nature. More information soon here…
